Are you always worried about accidentally harming someone else or yourself? Does your mind constantly play with the "What if?!" questions all day? Do you think you are going crazy and might end up in a psych hospital? Is your brain tired of preparing for all of the worst case scenarios?
Like You Might Die
Don't Care Anymore
Asking Others for Reassurance
Making Lists in Your Head
Writing Check Lists
Looking for "Proof"
Repetitive Habits That You Don't Like Doing
Doing Things Excessive/Extra
Looking at things that you hate and have been avoiding for a long time sounds miserable, but we know it's how you get better! Thoughts, images, and urges encompass all of the obsessions in your brain. To get rid of them and make you feel better, we need to desensitize your lifestyle and habituate your senses.
Avoidance, reassurance seeking, distraction, checking, and list making are common compulsions that people with OCD struggle with daily and can be helped with ERP.
How is OCD holding you back?!
Being able to do your own laundry?
Feeling happy and stable?
Spending more time with friends/family?
Driving to work and being productive?
Feeling good enough? Clean enough? Worthy enough?
Concentrating on one thing too much?
Images and urges that won't go away?
Feeling like you have to do things you don't want to, or feel like you need to do?
Reality checking? "Am I crazy?"
Let's change that!
